A Closer Look at the Parallel Lubrication System

At Lubecore, it is our objective to provide our customers with the best automated lubrication systems available for trucks and heavy machinery. In this post, we take a closer look at the Parallel Lubrication System.

What is it? 

The main function of the Parallel Lubrication System is to ensure that your machinery is being properly lubricated throughout its day-to-day functions.

To achieve this, the Parallel System utilises injectors that send through specific measured amounts of grease to each necessary point within your vehicle or machinery. This ensures that no under-greasing or over-greasing occurs, which works to protect and increase the life of your vehicle/machinery.

It consists of:

  • Large output capacity allowing for a significant number of grease points (90+) to be serviced by a single pump.
  • Equipped with a timing system that provides flexibility and allows the customer to adjust the amount of time the system runs. This changes the total output of grease.
  • Optional features such as pressure switch, automatic low level shut off, and operator communication test light warn the operator of system faults which helps prevent component wear.
  • All parallel systems are fitted with a heavy-duty inline filter, preventing dirt or debris from entering the system. The heavy-duty filter prevents the system from possible clogging and ensures smooth grease delivery even when the going gets tough and the elements make contact with the pump.

What is it made from? 

The Parallel Lubrication System embraces an innovative pump design, made from brass and aluminium components that ensure it will have a long life even in the most testing, corrosive environments.

Best Applications

If your work deals with a large amount of heavy machinery or vehicles (such as freight trucks), then investing in an automated lubrication system is a worthy option. Not only do they offer a more simplistic means of keeping your machinery properly lubricated, but the automated nature allows them to more efficiently disperse the lubricant to the most important parts – even when the machinery is actively running.

Why would you get one?

Automated lubrication systems also encourage a safer work environment. Instead of you or other staff having to navigate your way around potentially dangerous machinery simply to apply lubrication, the automated systems remove this need and promote a more functional, secure working condition.
